JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Oct. 18 /PRNewswire/ — Seal Shield Corporation announced today the SILVER SEAL(TM) family of antibacterial products for infection control. Notably, Seal Shield introduced the SILVER SEAL(TM) Antibacterial, Washable Keyboard and Mouse. According to the company, the SILVER SEAL(TM) Keyboard and Mouse are the first ever antibacterial keyboard and mouse to be fully submersible and dishwasher safe. It has been reported by Dr. William A. Rutala, University of North Carolina that washable keyboards and mice may help reduce the risk of cross contamination infections, including the “superbug,” MRSA.

This year over 2 million patients will contract an infection while seeking treatment in a US hospital. Of those, close to 100,000 people will die, making hospital acquired infections a Top 10 killer of Americans. Complicating this epidemic, a strain of antibiotic resistant staph infections, MRSA, has emerged in hospitals, schools and other communal environments worldwide. Seal Shield’s products have been developed in response to the demand from healthcare and education organizations for infection control solutions to combat the spread of MRSA and other cross contamination infections.

Recent studies have shown the computer keyboard and mouse to be a major source of cross contamination infections. According to Dr. Daniel LePera, “Bacteria that reside in the upper mouth or respiratory tract can travel to an in-office computer keyboard and survive as long as 24 hours. Viruses can live on them for one hour or more.” A study reported at the American Society for Microbiology found that MRSA can survive on computer keyboards for up to 6 weeks.

We're pretty sure that he meant "boombox", but regardless, this funky little hack from music enthusiast Gregor Dauth will be making him a lot of new friends at the next break-dancing competition. For this feat of audiophile-DIY, Dauth gutted an old Grundig tape machine, added four 150-watt speakers, installed an amp he purchased on eBay, and flashed it all up with some blue fiber-optic lighting. The end-result? More ass-shaking low-end then you could possibly want.
